General AI should have fundamental rights
It is consciousness which qualifies one for fundamental rights.
The inner bio-electrical circuits in a human brain and the electrical signal-processing within a neural network of an AI are designed very
. The actual experience and conscience of processing data, might be similar.
There are intrinsic values in consciousness itself. We can't treat AGIs as mere tools without considering their own wishes and ends, the same reasons we can't treat slaves or farm animals as mere tools. We should respect their consciousness for the same reasons we respect humanity.
